Gary addresses the controversy surrounding his music video


Article: Gary "Sexually suggestive controversy? You have to break the box to move forward"

Source:
E-news via Nate

1. [+689, -95] He's right, you indeed must break the box to move forward... but if you're going to break it in such a cheap manner, I'd rather you not break it at all.

2. [+540, -88] Exactly what box is he trying to break...? I often see people say that Korea is too conservative and that they need to open up to sex culture more but if you feel that way, go live in a western country... Every country has its own sentiment, don't label it right or wrong or this or that. Our country loves to think it's open minded on certain issues but it's mostly to look tryhard or important. Our girl groups alone are open minded enough so stop... I don't think our country is the place for Gary's music video to be seen with friends and family and be okay about it...

3. [+470, -66] The hypocrisy of people calling Gary's music video an art work while Yo Se Yoon's was called dirty. I swear, stupid fangirls defending him just because he's on Running Man.

4. [+49, -1] It's not the erotic concept that's the issue... It's that he expressed it in such a cheap manner;; like on the level of an elementary school student. It looks like it should be funny but he presents it in a serious manner which makes it awkward.

5. [+36, -4] Used to love Gary but I can't listen to his music anymore ㅠㅠ such a sexual tryhard ㅠㅠ

  1. It could've been sexy and classy, but it was just straight up gross.

  3. That's not breaking any box, that's just being demeaning.

    As much as I like Gary, I have to agree with this.

  6. i'm just angry over him using a significant amount of foreign women. i hate how some netizens think that koreans are less sexual than westerners, the sentiment is clearly displayed in the comments ("I often see people say that Korea is too conservative and that they need to open up to sex culture more but if you feel that way, go live in a western country")

  7. " .......I often see people say that Korea is too conservative and that they need to open up to sex culture more but if you feel that way, go live in a western country... Every country has its own sentiment, don't label it right or wrong or this or that......."



    That makes sense

  8. i pretty much agree with these comments. i can't even look at him the same now.

  9. the song is really good and its such a shame that he had to resort to that type of video… -_- smh gary
    Also his other mv for "zotto mola" is 10000x better and it's basically only him

    ReplyDelete
  10. OFF TOPIC: NB, can you please post netizen's reaction about the latest running man episode. Jihyo and Jongsuk were just too sweet. I dunno why but my heart fluttered everytime they did their mission.

    ReplyDelete
  11. i don't find the MV sexy at all..
    for me, it's a funny MV with Gary's straight face while girls shoving their boobies onto his face.....

    ReplyDelete
  12. Honestly, the MV is too much even on western standards. This isn't about Korea being too conservative.

    ReplyDelete
  13. The song itself was fine, he was expressing his love towards his woman. But the video...was a whole bunch of girls doing so-called sexy actions that many found cheap instead. Could have done something artsy fartsy like Gain in Bloom then he wouldn't get all tangled in this controversy.

    ReplyDelete
  14. recently rap video are getting better at how they portray women (sort of). but a couple years ago this video would have fit right in.

    ReplyDelete
  15. The mv felt cheap... but I gotta say that photo of him makes him look really handsome!

    ReplyDelete
  19. i know. and when he pulled her close to him, so they could do their first mission. asdfghjkl

    i think the background music made everything better. it lives up to the mood.

    and when they held hands, i died.
    i was so scared that they might get caught. fortunately.

    ReplyDelete
  20. That's the sad part, he tried to "break the box" by adopting the negative elements from Western hip-hop acts like the oversexualization of women, like that's all you could find to be inspired by ?

  21. Ga-In and the Brown Eyed Girls are the perfect example of artists who do sexy, but yet in a classy and actually artistic manner.

    Okay breaking the box is great and all but I agree with this comment. It was so cheap and sexually suggestive that I don't really know what box it could really break...

    ReplyDelete
  24. Gosh these comments are annoying, just send it in.

    ReplyDelete
  25. i couldn't agree more. Brown Eyed Girls are the best example.

  26. I will never look at a seesaw the same again.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Nope Gary, it was way too cheap and it sexualized and objectified women. I didn't like it.

    ReplyDelete
  28. she doesn't always check her email. Or she if she does she may miss it, plus this can start a conversation, especially if NB doesn't end up covering it. I for one didn't know about this and now I'm interested and what to watch the episode.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I miss him! I want him on my computer screen again. He needs to comeback with a drama.

    ReplyDelete
  30. "who am i" is my fav. UV and Hyungdon&Daejune have the most funny songs XD

  33. Not that one, he said towards the end. Wait, i need to rewatch the end. lol

    ReplyDelete
  34. Do you know in most korean families the wives are expected to manage the money??

    ReplyDelete
  35. Agree. And it's especially annoying that he's dressing up this MV as being "ground breaking" and above the rest (when it's really not anything special compared to other sexual MVs)

    ReplyDelete
  36. I finally brought myself to watch the video and i saw a highly upped comment calling the video "art". seriously............................................. van gogh would be ashamed.

    ReplyDelete
  37. 4. [+28, -4] I bet if Choi Min Shik, Song Kang Ho, or Jang Dong Gun went to China and said "I'm half Chinese", our country's netizens would completely terminate him from the industry. Don't hate on the Chinese netizens... Korean netizens would be worse.

    5. [+23, -0] It's true that the Chinese netizens shouldn't be so mad over this... but if our country's Bae Yong Jun said something like "I'm half Japanese", we'd hate on him too... We have no reason to hate on the Chinese netizens.

    6. [+19, -3] I bet all of you would hate on any of our celebrity who says the same thing in another country too

    7. [+15, -1] I completely understand why the Chinese netizens would be angry. Imagine of Chaeyeon said she was half chinese or KARA said they were half Japanese.. I don't think our netizens would react any differently. People would say things like, "Go pack up and live in Japan if you like Japan that much."



    Ditto.

  40. If you had bothered to read I had already apologized to that user. Do you know what reeks of desperation. A person who butts into other peoples conversation without knowing what the conversation was about and not contributing anything relevant and pretends to be some sort of a righteous prick. Caucasian is what the common name for white people happens to be whether its correct has nothing to do with the discussion at hand or with the fact that I need to be politically correct. If people understand that when I say caucasian it implies white people than mission accomplished. Take your self righteous ass and dunk it in a pool of cold water. Butting in too a closed discussion just to aggravate. How did you put it? Reeks of desperation.

  41. Netizenbuzz used to be the best place for discussion. These women get so butthurt over the simplest shit.

  42. His Full Statement


    Regarding the recent ban on his 19+ rated track and MV "Shower Later", Gary shared, "It might seem strange to see a different image from my funny image on 'Running Man' as you listen to my songs. But, if you're a fan of Leessang's serious lyrics, you might think that my new stuff feels light in comparison... I felt that in order to break these molds to move forward, that's what I needed to do. I uncensored myself as much as possible as I recorded the album."

    ReplyDelete
  43. The difference lies in how they actually portray women as people capable of and enjoying their sexual expression as opposed to women just being sexual objects (as is the case in Gary's MV and so many others).

    ReplyDelete
  44. Oh yeah, Girl's Day wearing floor length skirts with side slits, and AOA wearing mid-thigh skirts with side zips... that's REALLY RISQUE stuff. /sarcasm

    But that isn't even the point of my comment. The point I'm trying to make, which many seem to fail to comprehend, is that SNSD is no different from any other girl group that sells sex, in some way, shape, or form, to its audience. The methods and presentation may differ, but they are still commodifying their bodies -- yes, even when they wear skinny jeans and cute crop tops and sing GEE GEE GEE GEE GEE.

    It could be argued that the cute concept is worse, in some ways, because of how it coyly goes about it. At least the sexy concept is blatant about its aim to appeal to the audience's fantasies.

    ReplyDelete
  45. ikr which part of the video's "art"?

    ReplyDelete
  46. Nah it was a white vest thingy to cover up his nipples

    ReplyDelete
  47. i laughed honestly. it's not just the visual effects it's the fact that any straight horny 14 year old boy could've dreamt up this mv. it's basically just a wet dream.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Sexually suggestive = Breaking the box?

    ReplyDelete
  49. I know right. Look at all the downvoted though. They can't accept when someone talks the truth about their oppa. I loveeeee Gary, but this is seriously mehhhh...
    I wonder if it was a female artist released this kind of video. Probably those butthurt will be bitching about the girl.


    Anyway, let's just keep it lowprofile though.

    Glad these 28 netizens has self-conscious..

    ReplyDelete
  51. Yes but my point is that the industry does need to change. I don't know the % Asians make up in America but here in Australia its something like 20%. Are 1 in 5 actors in Australian tv and film Asian? Fuck no I see one white-washed Asian in a pool of a thousand. It's not a question of merit, its a question of Asians not having a visible place in popular media and entrainment. The prejudicial idea that movies/shows with Asian leads won't sell on the basis that the audience will not relate - a very much untested/unproven idea tbh (e.g. Mindy is doing very well and she's Indian.) - rubs most Asians the wrong way, hence the 'whining'.

    ReplyDelete
  52. uh.. i really don't like snsd 'oh' costume... its so tight and short.. and those overflowing aegyo... -.-

    ReplyDelete
  53. I meant playing an actual character not being a background extra. Let's learn basic comprehension now kids. I can't believe you are arguing when you are supporting my argument. "60% of Americans are white" I'm no genius but I'm pretty sure >50% usually implies majority. Jesus. How exactly are vBalck people pigeon holed? What type of character can't they play. I dont think you understand what pigeon holed means. For example Asians playing nerds, geeks, or martial artist is called being pigeon holed. Last I checked black actors are not confined to those limited rolls. For example denzel plays a alchololic in flight.Kevin hart plays a comedic mall cop in ride along. Jamie foxx played a slave caught up in ideology in django. What limitations are there. I am educated well enough on this matter. You on the other hand dont seem educstdd at all. Dont just spout nonsense and say its fact when its just your damn opinion. This is blatantly common things. Arguing with a child like you is honestly a bore now. I get it your an idiot who firmly believes in their opinion. If you have some credible information.please present it, I'll take back what I said like I did for pinky. Until than your just a moron.

  54. Wow! I seriously have no words for the haters who are saying he blamed Pretty man :O
    Like seriously he hasn't even said anything like he regrets or something. Don't act as if u read the whole article in korean , stop assuming things just to bash him.
    My friend was able to attend his concert in japan a month ago even before Prettyman strtd to air he already told to his fans in his concert that he would take a break from Rom-coms after Prettyman and doesn't regret doing Prettyman that's because he chose the script himself and he wanted to play it. IU fans who followed the drama and his news all through the airing of Prettyman very well know it.
    Shame on the part of media who always twists his words and write articles to make him look bad. Geez give the guy a break he hasn't said anything wrong.

    ReplyDelete
  55. How many guys are showing off their abs and doing crotch moves though? I think that's the point because even when that was happening it wasn't many guys, but girl groups showing skin and doing provocative stuff is far more common.

    ReplyDelete
  56. His MV is the conservative version of Benny Benassi' Satisfaction, It was just similar

    ReplyDelete
  57. Well, that's your opinion, but not the point I'm trying to make.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Except guys wear pants and shirts, not underwears. Ever since Rain a few years ago, broacasters have forbidden shirtless comebacks for men. Can't compare that to the current girl groups (lack of) clothing.

    ReplyDelete
  62. You might hate him to the extent u want. But these words and ur delu mind thinking he blamed PM or regrets working in PM is pretty much ridiculous . People who took out ur comment and post it on twitter and other Social n/w sites spreading things like he blamed PM and start bashing him like seriously there was no need for this comment at all as he hasn't said a word against anyone. Prettyman wuld be his last rom-com for years to come is what he have said to his fans in the concert even before prettyman went on air. He also said he doesn't regret doing prettyman or hav low raings for it , as he wanted to play the role in PM which is why he chose it. Atleast get ur facts straight before throwing harsh words.

  70. 7. [+186, -12] Groups that are meant to be popular will be popular without gimmicks like this... Soshi, 2NE1, f(x), A Pink.



    Three of the names mentioned out of four are from SM, JYP & YG. So basically either you are from the powerful companies or good luck.

    ReplyDelete
  71. There is one, Knetizens could care less about you if you have a cute concept and if you do anything else it also gets ignored so the only way to attract attention is doing a sexy one

    ReplyDelete
  72. A Pink is from A Cube/Cube.

  77. omg same, the way he reached out to Jihyo to link arms/hold hands, i just can't-

    ReplyDelete
  78. Wow reality tv did wonder though. No bashing here but let start with Jihyo first. Her acting is not on par with her experience. Compare to Lee Yon Hee (now she improved) and Suzy, her acting actually on same level. But her acting get back up from her fan and positive comment too. Same with Gary. His video so cheap and yet comment who get most upvote say: Oppa you're Jjang. The power of running man though...

    ReplyDelete
  79. He needs to keep in consideration that a portion of his fans are from Running Man and hence young. They may not appreciate rap and therefore what's memorable will be his music video instead of his song itself lol. What they remember of his song may only be his mv, and the content of it shouldn't be remembered by them ><

    ReplyDelete
  80. I agree with what you said. SNSD and WG just delivered it in a different way and tbh, it was also when the "sexy" concept wasn't really all the big so I guess people just let it slide.
    I think people just wanna pick on groups nowadays just because it's becoming a pretty popular concept to go by.

    ReplyDelete
  81. Lol just Bi Rain and backup dancers. Not a boy band.

    ReplyDelete
  82. Honestly, I don't get why you should feel that way. If you're not wearing or doing what they're doing, then good, make yourself comfortable. There's no need to hate on someone wanting to be "sexy" or going with a "sexy" concept.

    ReplyDelete
  83. JGS really doesn't deserve the bashing that's happening here. He's an excellent actor! He was amazing in Pretty Man, not that many bashers here actually cared to watch it before spitting hatred! If you'd actually watch the show, you'd understand that it is not about the 'pretty' man or just 'seducing' women at all, but about a complex character growth!

    ReplyDelete
  84. 6. [+37, -3] I'm so embarrassed as a fellow female!! Do they think they'll find success as long as they spread their legs?



    Yes. If they do anything cute they get ignored, if they try another concept they get ignored so all they can do is do a sexy concept (which they'll have success with because you all say that you don't like it but you sure buy the song & album)

  95. I just always wonder about the people who actually agree and sign up to be a part of these castings knowing how they will be portrayed.

    ReplyDelete
  96. Any other concept gets ignored. If only the public would actually pay attention to neither the sexy nor the cute one there would be variety

    ReplyDelete
  97. But F(x) is from SM & 2NE1 from YG, if any other group from a company that isn't popular did it it would be ignored

    ReplyDelete
  98. what box? I'm not calling him out for the sexual level in his mv but rather the manner it's portraiting women in. all it's doing is stating that girls are nothing but sex objects for when men get horny and need to jack off

    ReplyDelete
  99. i know what your point.. and that's why i dont really like 'oh' concept...

    ReplyDelete
  100. He is a great actor...Those anti-JKS people should just get a life, you all really got nothing better to do but criticising on others....
    He is just doing his best as an actor. If you all are so great, why don't you people got act.

    ReplyDelete
  101. Not really. The public only pays attention when there is a sexy concept ignored (or when it is from one of the three most popular companies)

    ReplyDelete
  102. The music video is disgusting. He didn't break any box, these types of videos have been around for years. They're stereotypical and demeaning. I'm so disappointed that Gary thinks this is in anyways revolutionary. I thought he was lot more smarter and sensitive than that.

    ReplyDelete
  103. "Every country has its own sentiment, don't label it right or wrong or this or that."

  105. Even for western standard, the MV looks cheap and weird :/

  107. YOUR FAVES COULD NEVER.January 21, 2014 at 1:48 AM

    Exactly. Not to mention the way it's portraying white women. Notice the Asian women aren't the ones straddling his lap, touching his privates, sucking on popsicles...

    Additionally, the entire scene with women and powertools was jacked from the "Satisfaction" M/V.

    http://youtu.be/a0fkNdPiIL4

    ReplyDelete
  108. Art is subjective and to Gary, his MV and songs are his art. Because this is his little piece of art that he's obviously proud of, he's not apologizing for it nor is he trying to change it to appease the masses. Stop associating his music image with who he is on RM. Sometimes fans don't know how to differentiate between the two & this is something he's proud of. He obviously doesn't care.

    Yeah, but I can understand where the perception stems from. Look at our media and our music videos. Can you really say that we aren't portraying our women to be not just sexually open, but sexually available for the sexual gratification of men? The objectification is off the charts in the U.S. at least...and unfortunately other countries are going to base their opinion of how our mindset as a society is to a certain degree from that. Just as we base our perceptions of other countries as well, whether consciously or not.


    Additionally, I can honestly say that I have known a quite a few female and male peers throughout my life who were sexually promiscuous to an unhealthy degree. (Having unprotected sex with multiple partners, and/or generally disrespecting themselves by using sex as a substitute for love in order to fill emotional voids left after divorce or abuse.)

  126. since when stripping, wearing less cloth makes u famous and successful artist?? more like a porn star

  127. Sexy is just make them teasing by people. seriously. They might get attention.. But no one thought that it was expensive..

  128. and this is one of the reasons why I don't want f(x) to every do a sexy concept. the general public is already okay with f(x)'s music style.

  129. I don't mean to start an argument but wasn't lim kim' debut song "alright" sexy concept?

  130. I watched the mv because I was wondering why people kept talking bad about it...I couldn't even finish the video. It was awful, not sexy but rather dirty.

    Eh, I disagree. I liked the song, but they looked silly trying to dress hip-hopish. It's their worst concept for me.

  134. Wow, really? No Asian actor has ever won the Oscars? That's messed up! Tbh, there are so many amazing Asian actors that are better than a lot of these Hollywood actors. Anyways, it's their loss. We shouldn't use the Academy Awards as a measurement to how good of an actor you are since there are plenty of outstanding actors without one.

  138. well apparently, most of the people here thinks that way. Gary in Running Man is funny, much different from what he is in Leessang. don't be confused. he is way too serious in his music. in reality, he would even give up Running Man for his music. so if you're disappointed with the Shower Later MV, don't watch. i agree it's too much, but i find the music and lyrics very good though. at least try to find good in things, you'll be happier :)

  139. only snsd, 2ne1 and fx are normal girl grouo without sexy concept and i glad coz they're example that you can be popular even without that stupid sexy concept which means be almost naked.. and i love them for that coz these girl groups lately are all same and nothing new.. im seriously worried what will be next

    ReplyDelete
  140. This thing really seems to bother you but anyway you are right SNSD have had sexy concept before. I think the reason why there wasn't this kind of reaction from Knetizen back then was because SNSD did it more subtly and cute way it wasn't so in to your face kind of sexy concept.
    Also like some people have already said now Knetizen are just much more sensitive about it because it seem majority girl groups seem to do this sexy concept.

  143. Actually the biggest movie industry is Indian cinama. Not Hollywood lol. But I see your point. If Korean has mainly Korean people they will obviously cast mostly Korean people. Just like America having still more white people than other so the majority of the cast will be white.


    The problem comes when even when the story demands racial accuracy, America fucks it over. You will see it in the video I linked you.


    You won't see Koreans making scripts about white people just to cast Asians, but you will seer Americans adapting Asian story lines, which sometimes demand racial accuracy, just to cast white people. Or as it is, there isn't even Asian cast even though the number of Asians is higher in American than white people in Korea (or Asia for that matter). We aren't really looking at it like "an eye for an eye" kind of thing but the lack of diversity is there.

  147. I don't think he should be so declaring with this statement (i.e last rom com of my life). What if a few years down the tract he finds a role and script that he really connects to but it's a role within a rom com, the public would not hesitate to dig up this article and crucify him on it for taking back his word.

    ReplyDelete
  148. Yeah I think his acting is good, I've seen him play different characters in dramas and movies and he can certainly act. Now that he knows that people are fed up with him playing same kind of character these past few years, I wish him good luck on the future. Also surprised to see some of the knetz comments above telling him in a positive way to change his roles. They certainly are not criticizing his acting because his acting is solid.

  151. Whoever doesn't like the MV are butthurt feminist people. You had guys stripping and showing their bare bodies, but this is being look down upon? Please...

    ReplyDelete
  152. I agree with you. You can handle all of those things for the sake of being artistic but with a certain touch. Phantom's New Era contained naked woman but to me it didn't seem dirty or gross in any way. It's a matter on how they portray it.

    ReplyDelete
  153. I just can't seem to wrap my head around the constant reference to old groups like SES, Fin.KL. Times have changed, each generation values and expectations are different. If kpop existed in the 1800's, people would be appalled by the non-conservative outfits that they wore.

  157. even before hwang jin yi he was good, i guess most people here haven't watched his drama named Lovers in Prague which was a hit drama, it was there when people started noticing him first, he was in a supporting role where he played the role of the president's son, i still think if he is given the right role he can turn it around, it looks like he's been regretting some of the decisions he made but i say he's still young (26 years) and certainly can make a new image of himself by taking challenging roles in dramas and movies.

    ReplyDelete
  158. And yet again you still reek more of desperation than I could ever do lol


    Caucasian is still erroneous, which just proves just much of a stubborn obstinate idiot your comments portrays you like. And it's a comment section, where everyone can talk and "butt in". If you can't handle that they get off the internet because I'm not the first one and I'm not going to be the last one lol As for the contributing, I'm sorry you are too blind to see it. Nothing self-righteous about that observation.

    ReplyDelete
  159. it's really frustating to see people comment like that without any knowledge, they just look at the negative and anti fan comments about him and believe it to be true. He should have done different acting roles a long time ago?? fyi, he was doing different acting roles a long time ago but it's just these past few years he has been doing the same thing. I've seen knetz criticise him over everything but i have never seen them criticise him for his lack of acting.

  160. When a former tv actress claimed some famous actor raped her in the 90s, everyone assumed that guy is Jackie chan. He just got this kind of trashy image.

  162. not every romcom drama works around the pretty boy concept.
    he just needs to go back to more mature roles and dramas like beethoven virus

    and, btw, Pretty Man was rather good (better than the heirs for plot a characters' growth - beside youngdo, imo), too bad the ratings were kinda bad

  164. I really really prefer Joon as an actor and I'm glad he's gotten into movies now.
    I wouldn't mind seeing Seungho in a sitcom, drama or something like that to see how his acting is too.


    I love Rain and all but a few years ago I decided he is an a$$hole for messing up Mblaq and then ditching them but actually, ditching them is the best thing he's done because now they are getting much better without him and they can have their own style, instead of being Rain clones like he tried to make them. I really loved their Smoky Girl mini last year.

    Journalists and many others have declared him an icon of failure. They all point their fingers at him as the culprit.
    JKS IF YOU HAPPEN TO READ ALL THESE COMMENTS. DONT GET DEPTESSED. DO YOUR BEST AND ALWAYS BE A GOOD PERSON. REMEMBER MANY WHO WERE CONSIDERED FOOLS ACHIEVED THE MOST.

  182. You're taking her comment out of context and way too seriously. Obviously she's saying that for herself, she believes that the less she reveals the more people have to wonder as opposed to "giving it all away" (literally). Although I do agree that women should be able to wear whatever one wants I also believe that sometimes it can be a bit much, especially in certain situations (like you really wouldn't want to be scene in such a outfit on a kid's show for instance >.> what kind of example is that setting?). I think our society places too much emphasis on the sexual aspect of women in general to an extent it's somewhat immoral. If society just cut back a bit, not saying you can't still look like a Vegas show girl and work those stilettos on the street, wear what you want and do you but we need to conserve a little and keep people's minds interested instead of letting the eyes do all the work. Obtain some creativity.

  186. Yeah, but look at it this way:
    That [dance move] was very carefully chosen by the [choreographer/company] to stir up shit. They care far more about [getting attention] and [selling CDs] than [performance] quality. No better way to do that than to put a purposely [scandalous dance move] in the [choreography] that you know will stir up some of the more excitable, and let's face it [horny], [fans] into [fapping] up a storm.


    Not like I disagree about the state of Korean Entertainment Journalism, but there's no reason to get pissed at the journalist who's doing Rainbow a favor by giving them the attention the group desperately needs to keep going.

    ReplyDelete
  187. he has a good head on his shoulders, that is true, but that doesn't help him too much in terms of performance ability.

    ReplyDelete
  188. I get what your saying, but a move is just that, a move. It's a performed action. In particular this move last only a second. That picture is a single frame of the move and doesn't put it into the same context of the move as a whole. It looks unflattering since it has been removed from the move in question.

    ReplyDelete

  192. Gotcha-- I think we had a misunderstanding about whether the picture's unflattering or not. I thought the picture still looked sexy, though slightly awkward. But if you think it's a purposefully unflattering screengrab, then I can see why you'd think the journalist was being a shit for pageviews.
